An opportunity for Tenants in Wales to contribute to the development of future building safety reforms
The Welsh Government is looking to consult with a broad range of residents (both tenants and leaseholders) to support policy development on proposals for Safer Buildings in Wales See information below from Welsh Government about what is involved and who to contact.
The proposals seek to legislate to empower residents by strengthening their voice on building safety matters, provide opportunity to engage with their landlord and ensure their concerns and complaints are listened to.
It is therefore important that we consult with a broad range of tenants and leaseholders so they can have their say on our proposals and share their lived experiences to help shape the Welsh Government’s understanding on building safety in Wales. We welcome interest from all residents who would like to contribute and ask them to contact us to take part in our focus groups.
We want to hear from as many tenants / residents as possible, but we are also particularly keen to ensure the voice and insights of disabled tenants / leaseholders and tenants/leaseholders from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities are heard. We welcome interest from these residents.
In addition to having an opportunity to contribute to the development of future building safety reforms, residents that partake in our focus groups will be compensated for their time.
If you are a tenant or a leaseholder and you are interested in taking part in our resident consultations and would like to know more, please contact Mike Corrigan on [email protected]
If you are a Housing Association and know of any interested residents, please ask them to contact Mike Corrigan on [email protected]. If you have contacts with Resident Associations and leaseholders in your housing stock, please can you forward this on to them? Thank you.
